2018 was a big year for the Waupaca Area Fire District fire station. Firefighters volunteered numerous hours rejuvenating the entire fire station. This long overdue project included washing and painting the walls and ceiling, painting the floors with an epoxy paint, and restriping the apparatus bays. Crews began the project early June and completed the project in late October. Because WAFD firefighters did the necessary work themselves, their dedication saved the district thousands of dollars in labor. This was done in conjunction with the City of Waupaca Street Dept. replacing all of the concrete outside of the fire station.
